1) How far of a walk along the beach from the Tucan into PDC??
2) Does anyone have any information on the shops that are in the Playacar shopping center?
3) How early can you get a cup of coffee at the resort? Does the lobby bar serve expresso?
4) In your opinion, is it really worth the extra money per night to upgrade to a Junior Suite or does a standard room work for 2 adults who will spend most of their time on the beach? Also, as far as standard rooms at the Iberostar Tucan, is there a certain room or building with a king size bed that has a slight view of the ocean/pool and is quiet??
Shammy is so right as usual regarding walking to PDC on the beach. If you did try it, you would get the The Reef Club and thats the end of the road. Matter of fact if the water is rough, I would not attempt walking around the point at the Allegro due to the many large rocks.
We shopped at the shops in Playacar and they are the typical jewelry, clothing, crafts and such. There is a nice .925/.950 silver shop in there but we seem to get better deals at the airport for silver. It's nice for a quick shopping fix but there is so much more in town. One good thing about the shopping village is that they do have a drug store and also a few places that sell tequilas and liquor.
